A proud Scanel tradition was continued when electrical apprentice Rasmus Repo Kjærgaard completed his 3½-year apprenticeship and was immediately hired as our newest fully-qualified marine electrician.

We’re honoured to report that Scanel's customer satisfaction rating for the first half of this year is 100%. The rating is based on written surveys of technical staff at nine customers immediately after we completed projects for them. Well done to everyone in Scanel’s electronic, electrical & electromechanical departments whose great work makes a 100% satisfaction rating possible.
Our QHSE department has just calculated the latest statistics for Scanel Offshore work. From the first Scanel offshore assignment in 2008 to date, Scanel staff have worked a total of 422,000 hours offshore.

Well done to all our colleagues on offshore oil, gas and wind energy projects on maintaining that remarkable safety record.
